A single click on any column name will activate it as a sorting criteria over the previous one or cycle through the possible orders:

  1. Ascending order
  2. Descending order
  3. No order

The available criteria depend on the nature of the list.

Sorting can be combined with Filters to further enhance the readability.


Global Actions

list-actions

Next to the list name you will find actions that are not tied to a particular element of the list, such as creating a new item, or bulk removal/edition. If there is more than one action it will be presented in a drop down menu like the above screenshot. Please refer to each list documentation page for more information on what these actions do.

Contextual actions

list-selection

If you hover your mouse on an element of the list you can see its contextual actions. These usually involve editing/removing said element.

Selecting one or several elements will also show the contextual actions that can be applied to all of them on top of the list. This is especially useful to bulk remove elements.

Warning

Holding the CTRL key while performing actions will bypass the confirmation messages, use it at your own risks.


Filters

A lot of the various views or panels in OctoPerf present lists that can be filtered in several ways. This section is a general guide on how to use simple or advanced search features.

Filter

Simply type some text to check if one of the objects in the list contains your search string.

Use this icon to switch to advanced mode.

Warning

The search is done on the entire objects, to avoid false positives try to use distinctive search terms.

Filter

Click on + Add filter to select the metadata you want to use for your filter. The metadatas nature and number varies depending on the type of objects being displayed in the list.

Use this icon to clear all existing filters and switch back to simple mode.


Filter

Next you need to configure the filter with one of the following options:

  • Starts with: The metadata starts with the specified value.
  • Equals: The metadata is equal to the specified value.
  • Contains: The metadata contains the specified value.

Use ignore case for a case insensitive matching.
